WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - The Cumberlands Patriots are coming off a 10-2 season that saw them advance to the national quarterfinals.
Like every football team, the Pats will have to replace several players at numerous positions, but one position that looks to be solid is the running backs, led by senior-to-be Terrance Cobb, a first team All-American in 2012. Head coach John Bland says he feels Cobb and the rest of his backs make up the best group of running backs in the country.
"We feel like our running backs, from start to finish, starting off with Terrance Cobb, who is an All-American. He'll be probably predicted to be, maybe, if not one of the best, the best player in the country. He'll return for his senior year. We also have D'Angelo Jordan, who was an All-Conference selection last year. We have Iquan Deed, who you mentioned there, and also Fred Byars, who has been an All-American as a freshman. So we got four guys returning plus some newcomers. We feel like right now, as a whole bunch, they're the best in the country," says Bland. "That group, not only Terrance Cobb, that group is the best in the country."
